The author seems like a nice person and writes in an easy, breezy style. I've only given it two stars because it is a little repetitive with lots of anecdotal examples to try to convince the reader of the value of thinking intuitively. The trouble is that she is either preaching to the choir, in which case they are just there for entertainment or if the reader is skeptical about new-age sounding evidence, they are unlikely to be convinced by one-off examples.

However, the author does provide some

I really like the idea that your body wants to heal, it is a matter of listening to your body and aligning your mind with the process of healing. I love to explore alternative ideas in healing. Some ideas I loved and others I am still thinking about and wonder if and when it will find place for me. The last section of the book, the section about Sexual Wellness was a little too far out "on the limb" for me. Overall I liked the book.

This book is taking me some time to get through. I am enjoying the insights, but as of late, I find I am more attracted to fiction. This was given to me by a friend at work. I do therapy with children and, at times, I feel completely drained by the work. This book is an aid on how to set up boundaries that allow one to be fully present with someone, yet not soak up their energy through the experience. Mostly, it reminds one to rely on their intuition as a guide.

Doctor Mixes Science and Intuition in treating her patients using hunches, gut feelings, her inner voice. Growing up in a family of doctors, she resisted becoming a doctor and then embraced psychiatry and alternative medicine. Cross between Larry Dossey and Sylvia Brown and questions why we heal and what give us the spirit to live.

Very enlightening and informative. I like how she uses each chapter to explain how the steps can work in a variety of situations from the physical to the spiritual to the interaction with those around us.

Try as I might, I could not muddle through this save for a few pages a week. I ended up returning it to the library after 141 pages and 12 weeks.

“our own. It is critical not to feel obliged to inherit something that doesn’t belong to us. Or to misread the bond with our loved ones as including their illnesses. Genetics may dictate the transmission of a disease, but we can do much to break our intuitive link to such a process.” 0 likes
